Article from Robert Harrison's girlie magazine Whisper (January 1954), featuring fake pictures of Christine Jorgensen (as Jorgenson): If the world's most headlined blonde should ever turn to modeling, she'd probably look like this - Christine Jorgensen thru a keyhole!
In the text: It's all in fun, friends, but frankly if Christine Jorgensen turned to modeling she'd be a sensation. To prove it, we've taken Christine's measurements (5'7", 125 lbs.), selected some professional model's bodies and put'em together with Christine's head. Here's an exclusive WHISPER presentation of how she'd look as a cover girl model!
